Lincoln Train Station in Gettysburg

The train station in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania is opening for tours.

Originally opened in 1859, the train station was converted into a hospital after the battle. In November 1863, President Lincoln arrived in Gettysburg to deliver one of the most famous speeches in American history, but historians just aren’t sure if Lincoln walked through the station upon his arrival.

The Lincoln Train Station is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm. It is also open on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm. Admission is free. Call 717.339.6161 for more information.
